Purpose of this change

This proposal is for a Permanent change to the notified airspace design, and the change level is 1. The detailed process requirements are published in Part 1 of CAP 1616.

Edinburgh Airport is growing fast.

We propose to introduce a number of RNAV1 Standard Instrument Departures (SIDs), RNAV1 Arrival Transitions and RNAV5 STARs in order to meet technical requirements and improve airspace efficiency and capacity. Our target runway capacity is 50 movements per hour.

These new routes will take advantage of improved navigational capability, which will allow better planning and increase the capacity of the airspace and the runway, particularly in peak times. This may also minimise the environmental impacts of flights in terms of the total number of people overflown, as well as when and how often they are overflown – while also cutting average CO2 emissions.

We believe an improved airspace with the right flight paths and technology for Edinburgh Airport will ensure our airport can meet existing and future demand by increasing the capacity of its runways and allow flights to depart with fewer delays and environmental impacts.

Step 3a : Consultation Preparation

This step has been started

During the Consultation Preparation Step, the sponsor plans its stakeholder consultation and engagement, and prepares consultation documents, including the second-phase Full options appraisal with more rigorous evidence for its chosen option(s).

CAA response to Step 3a

17/04/2023: Until iteration three of the airspace change masterplan, including the updated programme plan has been assessed and accepted by the CAA and Department for Transport as co sponsors of airspace modernisation, the full indicative timeline for this ACP cannot be confirmed. The Gateways within the published document 'Indicative Timeline - April 2023' are subject to change.
